Qatar Sports Park is a groundbreaking sports facility that is planned for Shirakawa City. Known as the gateway to the Tohoku region, the city’s residents had to be evacuated following the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in 2011. The innovative Park is due for completion by the end of 2014, meaning those same residents will soon be able to enjoy recreational activities that are an integral part of life in Japan, and which will reinvigorate the lives of up to 150,000 people in Shirakawa and the surrounding area.
